Nature is calling you to come Explore Your Way… our rolling forest covered hills, ample rivers, diverse lakes, and varied trails all interconnect and span for miles and miles of fun.

The Cadillac region is the geographic center of Michigan and boasts the highest elevation in the state.  The shifting winds across Lake Michigan keep the winter white on our trails and ski hills longer, and freezes our lakes earlier than most.   Skiers, snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, ice fisherman… they all co-exist in our region.

Winter is coming to an end, and the rivers and lakes will fill with melted snow, while the spring flowers pop up in our forests.

Outdoor enthusiasts, GET READY for an adventurous spring after all of this snow.  All three area rivers (Manistee, Pine and Pere Marquette) will be swollen with water, waiting for your fishing, canoeing and kayaking adventures to start.  

Lakes Cadillac and Mitchell are almost open, be very careful!   We do recommend making sure you are fully prepared and check in at our local DNR to make sure the area you are planning to be in is safe - high water tables hide many unsafe items.
